The Centtal Institute of Indian Languages was set up 
on the 17th July. 1969 with a view to assisting and co-ordina- 
ting the development of Indiao languages. Yhe Institute 
was tharged with this responsibility of sierving as a nucleus 
to bring together all the research and literary out-put from 
the various linguistic streams to a common head and narrow- 
ing the gap between basic researdi and developmental research 
in the fields of languages and linguistics in India. 

The Institute and its five Regional Language Centres 
are thus engaged in research and teaching, which lead to the 
publication of a wide-ranging variety of materials. Prepara- 
tion of materials designed for teaching/learning at different 
levels and suited to specific needs is one of the major areas 
of interest of the Institute. Basic research relating to the 
acquisition of language and study of language in its manifold 
psycho-sodal relations constitute another broad range of its 
interest. The publications will include materials produced 
by the members of the staff of the Central Institute of 
Indian Languages and its Regional Language Centres and 
associated scholars from Universities and Institutions, both 
Indian and forego. 

The Central Institute at Indian languages has initiated 
a Basic Course Series in majcff Indian languages to provide 
suitable and comprehensive material for learning and 
teaching the language concerned for Indians. In a language 
teaching situation, the teacher is expected to combine the 
roles of a psycho-linguist, socio- linguist, linguist, language 
pedagogue, a creator of materials, a literary critic and a 
testing and evaluation expert. Most of his competences are 
naturally reflected in the materials, which simultaneously 
are graded from simple to complex, known to the unknown 
and contrived to the natural. This is a very difficult task; 
After reseatdi and experimentation we have come out with 
more questions than answers at each stage of the materiaL 
For example, how basic is basic? What is grading? ^o7^!^' 

9t J Ait Intensive Coarss iA As^mef 

ttray can linginstic and cultural matter be gracXed? Is quiestioit, 
vith which most learning begins, ampler thaa statement? 
How does one move from a purely language based compe- 
tence to creating literary sensibilities? How does one build 
into the material conceptual prose? How are lessons to be 
presented? Should the translated discourse structure be made 
to lode similar to the original discourse structure? Questi{m» 
such as these have been answered differently hy Afferent 
teachers and researches. This search is a ontinuiiig [&eno- 
menon. Therefore, these materiaU represent our unfinished 
education in this area. 

The format for the basic course is the result of a 
consensus arrived at by the lecturers and Principals of the 
five Regional Centres of the Institute engaged in the 
teaching of major Indian languages. This is the product of 
almost eight years of teaching and reaeardi. This format is 
flexible and has left much scope for individual authors to 
iiinovate. If these courses help the desirous to leatn and 
stimulate those interested in applied linguistics, with ^}ecial 
reference to the teaching of Indian languages as second/foreign 
languages^ then the Institute would feel rewarded. 

I congratulate the teachers, the trainees, the supervisors- 
atid the press and publication people who have brought out 
the publication in a creditable manner.

Editor** Note 

The Intensive Course Series aims at imparting mainly 
a proficiency in the listening and speaking skills of the langii" 
age learnt The learning materials are presented in the script 
of the language throughout. In the beginning several lessons a^' 
presented in Devanagari as a prop. The books under this seriis 
■do not provide the learners with an introduction to the script 
of the language. However, the traditional alphabetic chart of 
the concerned language is given at the beginning ot the book. 
In addition, the learners are expected to master the script of 
the language before they actually use the lessons of the Intea- 
^ive Course. For ttiis they are advised to use Script Bopks and 
Copy Books published by the Central Institute of Indian 
Languages in its CIIL-KVS Series. 

Language teaching, in some sense is an artifidal acti- 
vity. It requires breaking the global language into, at times, 
«ven arbitrary units. The books in this series are no excep- 
tion to this inevitable consequence of the model followed. 
This was, however, borne in mind all throu^ to keep the 
artificial element under control. 

Each Language learning manual in the Intensive Course 
Seriescovers the 'basic" structures, pf, that language used for 
•certain identified topics of common intetttf. Lessons are 
generally presented ui ttiie form of conversations. These lessons 
are grouped under various units. 

The variables for the choice of dialect through which the 
■materials are presented, the methods for the administration of 
exercises and drills in the class, and other tips for both the 
teacher and the learner would be found in the series. It should 
be emi^iasized here that the Intensive Course Series is an 
integral part of the scheme of language't:eaching of the Regio- 
nal Language Centres of the Central Institute of Indian 
Languages. Books in the Intermediate Course Series and the 
Advanced Course Series are an extension of the books pabli- 
shed under tiw Intensive Course Series.

Language learning is a very complex activity. Its 
■succrss is largely determined by the method, nedium, material 
and the mstivatioa ai the leimer. The highly organised 
currictdnra and planning show^ the way to achieve the educa- 
<iom1 goal with case and n^dtty- 

The present Irttenswt Course emphasises the listening 
:and speaking profeaency oi the learners of the Standard 
Colloqiiial Assamese in the basic course stage of the Regional 
Laniiaage Trainii^ Prograrame of Central Institute c(f Indian 
Languages. This is a companion to Other volumes such as the 
Phonetic Reader, the Script Boob, the Hindi Assamese Common 
Vocahalary and sewral other reading and writing materials 
envisaged by the Central Institute of Indian Languages. 

The Assamese language training programme of Central 
Institute of Indian Languages is of the duration of 10 months 
-which comprises of 1100 dock hours- The Basic Course has 
about 450 clock hours of instruction with primary em{^sis 
on the spoken lai^uage. The present Intensive Course covers 
300 hours of intensive instruaion in the basic course stage. 
While preparing this, a sequence ot four basic steps, namely 
presentdtion, explanation, repetition and teansfer has been 
followed, and the following main and sub-objectives as set 
out by Central Institute of Indian Languages for the basic 
courses in different Indian Languages have been kept in view. 

1. To perceive and reproduce the sounds and their meaning 
f ul sequence. 

Sub-objectivei : 

(a) to identify the sounds in their meaningful sequence. 

<b) to discriminate the sounds in their meaningful seque* 

nee, and 
(c) to orally reproduce the sounds in meaningful sequence* 

2. To be able to form sentoice orally from given patterns 
and lexical items.

3. To be able ta ccjnversc with the teacher and with fellow 
trainees on specified topics under contrtJIed situations. 

4. To be able to narrate specified events and topics orally- 

5. To be able to read simple and graded pass^es- 
Snb-o^ectivBS ; 

(a) to be able to recognise ths letters of the alphabet in 

isolation and in sequence. 
^b) to be able to comE^ehend passage containing simple 

6. To be able to write simple sentences and gxiided composi- 
tions on specified topics. 

Sub objectives : 

(a) to be able to write letters, words and simple sentenceF, 

(b) to be able to write ^ided compositions on specified 

Of the above objectives, the present Intensive Course is 
based on the objectives 2 to 5. Other objectives have also 
been partly covered as there can'cbc any water-ti^t separa- 
tion between thf se. This book covers 300 clock hours of the 
basic course and the rest of the instructional hours are devoted 
for such items as script teaching, practice in language labora- 
tory, reading etc. The teachable hems have been carefully 
graded considering the various factors like proceeding from 
the simple to the complex, from the known to the unknown 
and presenting only the content relevant to the user etc. This 
book can be very profitably used also as a text book for any 
generalised second language A^amese course, and with some 
care, even as a semi-insttuftional material. 

There are atleast 3 principles which characterise an 
Intensive Course. These are (i) complete concentration on 
one purpose, (ii) high degree of curriculum organisation and 
planning, and (iii) the seperation of the functions of teaching, 
and drilling. The first principle entails upon the leamei that 

Introduction I vi 

he concentrates on the learning task, and on the teacher and 
the matetial producer that they present the learning material 
in a systematic and consistent minner taking one step at a time 
and concentrating, wherever possible, on one structure at a 
time. The second principle advocates a high degree -of organi- 
sation and meticulous planning. As the allocated time is 
precious and valuable. the careful planning of what,is reqpiied 
by the student is indespensible. The selection and gradation 
of the linguistic patterns and the presentation adopted in this 
volume will certainly facilitate the learner to acquire the 
language rapidly. With regard to the third principle, there is a 
strong belief that the teacher who is responsible for intro- 
ducing patterns, alone can perform the function of ,drillii^ 
better. But some scholars feel that it is inadvisable to have 
the same teacher for both the functions. They hold the opinion 
that to ensure the optimum fulfilment of teaching and drill- 
ing there should be a seperation of responsibilities. Althou^- 
this principle has no direct relevance to the preparation of 
instuctional matetial as such, the teachable patterns in this 
volume covered in the body of the lesson, whueas the drills 
and exercises are presented seperately after theNxxly of the 
les on. 

A few books have been written and published for tea-' 
cbing and learning Assamese as a second language 'or as a 
foreign language. They are Assamese Tutor by Parcsh 
Chandra Deva Sarma. 1967, A guide to Assamese by Nirmale- 
swar Sarma, l^il63, Assamese Self Taught by Bidhu Bhusan 
Dasgupta, and Assamese for All by Dr. Mukunda Madhab 
Sarma. In addition to these, AIR, Gauhati also used to broad- 
cast Assamese lessons for some time. The present work takes 
into account the merits of the above and differs from these in 
terms of selection, gradation and presentation. It is not possi- 
ble to teach the whole of the language m any course or to 
cover the structures of the whole of the language in any 
single book. A material producer, therefore, has to carefully 
arrive at decisions as regards 

xiij An Intensive Course In Assamese 

(i) which dialect has to be taught, 

(ii) which legister (genetally the language variety used 
hy vaiious professional groups) has to be focused, 

(iii) to what extent the standard colloquial has to be 
taught, and 

(iv) how much familiarity with the written language is 
to be established- 
Above all. he should decide as to 
(v) What are the linguistic items to be taught, and 
(vi) what shall the vocabulary load be. 

As language is a social activity, the utterances learned 
and produced should be 'acceptable' and 'appropriate' to the 
behaviour patterns of the community in which it is spoken- 
The criterion of 'appropriateness' in most of the materials has 
not been adequately considered. Overreliance on the dectlon- 
ary usages an^ traditional grammer makes the materials 
artificial. Secondly, gradation « -aaothw i ni f Br tmt criterion 
that has been ignorned in the existing materi^s. Most of the 
available materials do not pay adequate attention to grada- 
tion. After selection, the linguistic items should be carefully 
graded. Related items should go together. Simple matters 
precede and difficult matters follow. Vocabulary load also 
has to be accordingly distributed : known/familiar words 
earlier and unknown words later. There shall be planned 
reperition of the previously introduced items and vocabulary 
before new items and vocabulary are introduced in the new 
lesson. The present work attempts to follow the principle of 
gradation to a great extent. Thirdly, presentation is the most 
improtant factor about which the inresent work is very much 
concerned. The linguistic items and the required vocabulary 
have been built in into dialogues in each lesson in such a way 
that the situation itself makes the meaning clear. The learners 

Introduaion / xiii 

can rightly apply their guesswork and infer the meaning, and 
in some cases, however, the teacher will be requued to help 
the learners by demonstration and explanation. 

The present work gives due weightagc to pattern 
practice and drills. Various kinds of drills, such is repetition 
drill, build-up drill, substitution drill, variation drill, trans- 
formation drill, expansion drill, contraction drill aie 
presented after every dialogue. Drills would give additional 
practice to establish the patterns introduced through the 
dialogues of the lesson as habit. Research condiuted shows 
that any item repeated several times is easily memorised. 

Pattern practice and dialogue alone will not be sufficient 
to meet the needs of the learners in communication. "Activi- 
ties such as pattern practice, dialogues, questions, answers are 
'pretend* language learning activities." Jakobvits, 1972). This 
does not mean that these 'pretend' activities would not have 
any impact on the process of language learning. It depends 
upon how far these conversational transactions ace 'real* and 
'authentic'. It is obvious tbat the class-room can't be a real 
conversational setting for all purposes. Hence it is quite 
imperative on the pact of the material producer to provide 
the learners with ranversational rules or the communicative 
rules of the speech community whose language is being learnt 
The present work tries to overcome this problem by providing 
theleam^TS with many diftcent types of conversations in 
natural setting and also by giving various kinds of drills. 

With regard to the teaching method adopted, the 
Central Institute of Indian Languages is higily convinced 
by theory and experience that no single method can explain 
and guide second language learning as a developmental process. 
The complexity of language teaching can be met only with 
flexible and manysided procedures and techniques. There- 
fore, an integration of many procedures into a method is 
highly appreciated. In this way our approach is eclectic which 
is open to all valuable suffiestions from different methods. 

xtp I At InttTuipg Course in Assames 

Unlike other instructional materials the present book 
uses Assamese Script foT the presentation of the lessons from 
the beginning to the end. Roman transcription has not been 
given. However, Devanagari transliteration has been given up 
to lesson 10- This will help the learners to read the materials 
till they become conversant with the Assamese alphabet 
as there is almost one to one correspondance between the 
Assamese and Devanagari alphabet. In many cases, there are 
variations between the pronunciation of words and their spell- 
ing in Assamese script, and, therefore, the presence of a teacher 
or some help from a tutor who would model the pronunciation 
for the learners is ess^tial. The use of Assamese script in a 
composite course like this will enable the learners to read the 
written materials fluently at a later stage. Our experience 
shows that mastery of the script can be achieved within lO 
dock-hours. After having learnt the script in 10 clock hours in 
10 days the learners are able to read the material in Assamese 
script without Devanagari transliteration. No effort has been 
made in this book to establish the phoneme-grapheme corres- 
pondences as there is a sepaiate Phonetic Reader for this 
purpose. However, the general pronunciation rules have to be 
given by the teacher wherever necessary. 

The equivalent Engll^ translation of each sentence ui 
the dialogue is also given. This English might sound strange 
at places as it is designed mainly to represent the Assamese 
smicture without destroying tbe meaning of the dialogue. 

This Intensive Course consists of 15 Units which are 
further sub-divided into 7d lessons. A Unit is designed in 
such a T3y that it covers a group of related grammatical 
patterns of a major grammatical structure. This is further 
divided into several teachable patterns spread over the 
component lessons of that Unit. Each Usson covers at lease 
one of the structural patterns of a major grammatical structure 
focused in that Unit In other w(»ds, while each lesson 
Ipthises on a structural pattern, the Unit focuses on a group of 

IntroduObm f xf 

related structural patterns that form a simple major gramma- 
tical structure. Each lesson; in turn, has five components, 
namely (i) Dialogue/Narration (only a few lessons are in the 
form of narration), fii) Drills, (iii) Exercises, (iv) Vocabulary 
and (v) Grammatical Notes. A few lessons contain the sixth 
compcment namely (vi) Cultural Notes. Each dialogue presents 
a meaningful situation with the introduction of two or three 
teachable patterns. As the number of lesson increases the 
patterns are remforced in the subsequent lessons However, 
other following components such as drills, exercises, gramma- 
tical notes etc. focus only on those specific new patterns that 
are introduced in each lesson. Depending on the need of the 
class the teacher may carry on drilling the previously intro- 
duced patterns. The drills are immediately followed by 
different kinds of exercises. This is a selected learning activity 
that is guided by clear and adequate instructions. The exer- 
cises in Intensive Course are carefully organised to develop 
the learner's reperCoiie of performance strategies. Since each 
exercise presupposes a certain amount of knowledge of lingui- 
stic rules, the exercises immediately follow the structural 
drills where the linguistic rules are practised and consolidated. 
Each lesson has a number of exercises that are intimately 
connected with the structure introduced. 

The vocabulary items of each lesson are listed separately 
according to their order of occurrence in the dialogue. This 
includes only the items that occur for the first time. The 
^ngl^ equivalent is given against each item. This meaning 
is confined to the context of reference in the dialogue. That 
is, the shades ol meaning and other relevant informations 
of the use of an item are not given in the present work. How- 
ever, the teacher has the liberty of bringing the various uses 
of a vocabulary wherever felt necessary. The selection of the 
vocabulary items is largely determined by the choice of wide 
variety of situations in which the learners are likely to partici- 
pate. In order to have an equitable distribution, the Recall 
Vocabulary (semantically classified) which is likely to be 

xvi I An Intennve Coursa in Assam«M 

published by CIIL has been kept in view. Besides, the Hindi-. 
Assamese Common Vocabulary (under publication) may also 
be referred to. It is inevitable that the similarity and diffe- 
rence in terms of form and meaning of the vocabulary of the 
target language and the mother tongue of the learner are 
likely to help or hamper acquiring the vocabulary of the 
target language. The approximate number of vocabulary 
covered in this Intensive Course is 2500. 

The grammatical explanations presented in this book are 
structural in nature. The aim is to cater the needs of the 
teacher. The explanations shill also be of help to the learners 
in understanding the structures after prolonged absence or 
interrupti<Hi. In case, the grammatical behaviour of a parti- 
cular structure is spread over more ttian one lesson, necessary 
references have been made in the grammatical notes. 

Conscious efforts ha ve been made to familiarise the 
learners with the cultural back^ound of the people who 
speak the language. The ancient heritage of Assamese, impor- 
tant personalities like Sri Sankardeva, holy places like the 
Kamakhya temple, natural beauty of Assam. ge<^aphical 
characteristics like the river Brahmaputra, the way of living 
of the common peo{4 etc. have well been illustrated. Besides, 
the beauty and peculiarity of places like Kashmir and Mysore 
are also given due imponance. Therefore, some lessons 
contain cultural notes, which, however, have been attempted 
to be made brief. Fhe teacher may explain them in the 
target language within the limited struaure uking resort to 
other relevant sources alsa 

The following instructkms will be found useful by the 

1. The teacher ^ould always bear in mind that a good 
method is comprehensive and eclectic. The valuable 
suggestions from different methods may be used when- 
ever the situation demands; 

liitroJacHm f xvi( 

K Aa(Qi$itioin of good pronunciation fortns an important 
(»Tt of language learning. The teacher should make the 
learner to acquire the capacity to recognize the varioos 
■speech sounds aad produce them in isolatioa as well as 
in sequence. The phonetic drills in the Assamese 
i'Aonettc Reader may be used for developiag effective 
ipronundatton. The meaniag of the words may be ignored 
at this stage. 

3. The problem soands may "be described. That is, the 
aiticolatory description of a problem sound is a power- 
ful prop. Facial diagrams can also be used The contrast- 
ing pairs of the problem sounds should be administered 
fcT drills. 

4. Tlw script sliould be taught ^maltaaeoosly with 
pMtems. To get a mast^y over the orthography, the 
teacher should develop automatic association between 
written forms and speech sounds, Devaaagari script 
may be used fot reading until the learners mister the 
Assamese saipt. 

5. Tlfte learnos may be sivea some ^cpUnatton in legatdl 
to the <Jiacritic marks juid special symbols used in 
Devaiugari versioa- 

6. It is assu«ed tbAt there will be a concartent script 
teaching class ev^yday. Hence the teacher may illustra- 
te the letters introduced in the scti^ class with words 
and phrases taken from the struaures inttoduced. 

7. The dialogues in this course ate highly situation centred. 
Before presenting' the dialogue the teacher should prepare 
the students to understand the patterns to be introduced. 
This can be done with the revision of the earlier lessons. 
As the dialogues are mostly related to each other this 
ground work can be done easily and successfully.

8. In ihtioducmg the paftem, the Ceadier should proncrancp 
each sentence first, followed l^ eithcx a diocal or kidi' 
▼idud lepetitioii of the ninr. 

9. The teaciiet macy bring many more contexCs to teach the 
structures involved Thus, a couimumcatire operation 
of the language in use may be brot^t to the class room^ 

10, Discourage the students frcm the habit of over- relying 
on translation for coittprehensicn. Makethe students to 
think in Assamese as soon as possible- In the class room 
make a minimam use o^f a language other than Assamese- 

2L When new words arc introduced special attention 
should be paul by the teacher to their correct pronuncia- 
tion before they are used in the patterns. 

12. A brief explanation on the similarities and differences 
of the patterns introduced in the lesson with reference 
to the learner's mother tongue may be given by the 
teacheri provided he has a complete n^astecy over the 
learner's mother tongue. 

13. In administering the drill the teadier should not slow 
down his natural speed. 

14. The intonation pattern of each sentence as found in 
covetsation diould be maintained when it is given in 
isolation for drilling. 

15. The teacher should not mimic the learner's mispioun- 

16. Many of the exetcises may also be administered orally. 
The teacher should always remember that the exercises 
should be used for written task, only after the oral 
administration is over.

jSrT, The grammar teaching is necessary to impart the know- 
ledge of the basic structural principles. The stcuctuies 
snust be described as non-technically as passible. 

JIsS In teaching grammar, the learner must be taught the 
terminology which will act as a convenient system of 
reference £oc the ezplantion. Being an adult and already 
-educated, the learner may not have much difficulty in 
learaing cotain technical terms and understanding the 
■uitalanguage we use. 

19l T^e learner need not be compelled to memorize the 
jrammarical rules. He learns many things by analogs 
and analysis Moreover, the drills and exercises are 
organised in such a way as to impose a particular 
grammatical rule indurecdy. 

20. The internal and external sandhi should be explained 
adequately. This may be represented in the form of 
mles as the learner is likely to be familiar with sandhi 
rules of his mother tongue. 

21. The teacher should supply the learners with additional 
cultural notes wherever found necessary. 

22. Testing is an essential ii^edient in any teaching 
situation. The teacher should undertake the preparation 
of skill-wise tests. The testing techniques such as trans- 
lation» dictation, composition, multiple choice items^ 
short answer items, etc. should be used in the classroom. 
Careful analysis on the part of the teacher is highly 
expected in preparing and scoring test irems. 

Z3. The teacher should use audio-visual aids wherever 
necessary These have to be pt^red by the teacher 
following the materials to be presented in jthe class. 
These may include picture cardst wall pictures, flannel

Notes on Grammatical & Cultural points 

C5^ : a vocative term, used to address youngers in non- 
honorific sense. The corresoponding less-honorific 
and more-honorific forms are cf^J and csf=f i 

1* : This is used explctively after an interrogative pro- 
noun in an intimate sense. This is also used in 
making positive response, meaning 'yes'. 

(^zm : Third person singular more-honorific personal 
pronoun. It corresponds to the 2nd personal pronoun 
«tt*3f5f I Its genitive form is C^C'^^ I 

f^5? Genitive form of f«5-, a pronoun 'non-human) 
meaning 'what thing', f^^-haj no independent use. 

^'^ : Genitive form of ^-', a pronoun meaning 'of which 
place'. *-' has no independent use.

It is a general feature in Assamese that the initial 
%-oi all case-suffixes is lost when added to stems 
ending in voweL 

Assamese manifests 3 ranks in the 2nd person ; 

^T^=i is used in more-honorific, ^ in honorific 

and ^ in non-honorific sense to address the hearer. 

This distinction is important in social context.

'you (more-hon.) are' 


'you (hon.) go' 


'you (more-hon.) go' 





Notes on Grammatical & Cultural points 

1. The veibs in this lesson are in the present indefinite. 
When two persons meet on the way and one asks where 
the other is going, generally the present indefinite, not 
the present continuous, is used in Assamese. 

2. The personal suffixes used in this tense are : 

1st P. {sg -)-pl.) -4 

non-hon. -i 

2nd P. (sg. + pi.) hon. -«ir 

more-hon. -*fl 

3rd P. {sg. -I- pi.) -^ 

3. Verb stems ending in -1 or -«it take oblique forms ending 
in -'S when personal suffix -it is added; Jl occurs as a glide 
in betwe'en -« and -^ eg : »iT-}-»l1>C^?1; «lT+«lt>(?fl^ 1 

( 50 ) r- 1 

Digitized OyGOOgIC 

4. -c6t and -»R arc definitives. When some noJn or pronoun 
is required to the mentioned definitely, such definitives 
are added. Some nouns (and the pronouns referring to 
nounsl take C^; some other nouns (also pronouns) take 
-^ I Tlie following examples may be seen ; 


'the pen' 


'the book* 


'the house' 


'the table' 


'the shirt* 


'the wall' 


'the day' 


'the door' 


'the mind' 


'the saree' 


'the poem' 


'the novel* 


'the scng' 


'the letter' 

Demonstrative Pronouns referring to the nouns would 
take -dt or -'R depending upon the choice of the 
nouns, eg : 

c^c§t *pm, pf)«H f*«t»t, 

C*IT^^ Pftc^, T?\^ «fW 1 

5. The sentence in the parenthesis does not confirm to the 
pattern introduced in this lesson. Since the context 
demands, this sentence is introduced here. 

No effort should be made to explain the sentoice 
here. The students have to wait till lesson no. IL

Notes on Grammatical and Cultural points 

i I c?!^ — It is a term of address, used in more honorific 
sense. It is also used to make pauses by the 
native speakeis when the next sentence does not 
come to the mind readily. 

^ r •J\%, Ci? — ^Both are demonstrative pronouns, meaning 'this*. 
•s\t is proximate and c*i? is obviative. ^a? is used 
to refer to things or articles in front of the speaker 
and ci^ to refer to remote ones. -^ is also used 
as a 3rd personal (feminine) pronoun. 

These always take definitives-*^, -VI eta 
depending upon the requirement of nouns, as 
shown in the notes in Lesson No. 3. 

I 63 ) 


An lntensiv$ Courst 

Numerals also take such definitives depending 
upon the requirement of the nouns reffered to. 
But Ji*>^-and 5?>5-when definitives arc added 
to. eg; Ji^^, j\^, 5«i3|, 5^ I 

meaning 'need' is an irregular verb root. Its 
inflection is restricted to 3rd rerson in all the 
tenses- It does not take a personal prcuioun or a 
noun as the nominative, eg: 

CT^ffitCI 'Ineed' 

^C*lt^ »TtCt 'need cloth' 

(?n? ^WK sitW *I need cloth* 

Accusative case-suffix : 

The case-suffix for the accusative in Assamese 
-^ or-«if I -^ is added to the vowel ending 
nouns whereas -«R« is added to both consonant 
ending nouns and pergonal pronouns. 

The following personal pronouns ending in 
vowel take oblique shapes in -« before the 
accusative case suffix is added.

This plural suffix is added to nouns and demonst-

The genitive (as well as the other case suffixes) are the 
terminal suffixes in the word formation in Assamese, 
The suffixes for marking number, gender etc would be 
first added to the noun . stems (including pronouns) and 
then the genitive suffix and other case suffixes would be 
added eg: 

C^^ or c^tn means 'pair'. This is used to mean the articles 
or objects which are usually referred to, counted or sold 
in terms of pairs — 

C^ is also used as definitive. 
^t^^-CTt^ = ^ft=¥sn;^^ "the pair of cocoanuts* 

5^-CTt?=5$pJt'( 'the pair of eyes'

Grammatical Notes 

1. To express the imperative (2nd p. non-honorific) 

the bare nounestems arc used in Assamese, eg. 

2 -C5tsf' : Added to the verbal forms in 2nd person impeiative, 
it adds politeness or softness to the request or 
command made. 

3. 1% ^ : f% alone means 'what'. When reduplicated, it gives 
plural sense to what is referred to by 'what*. Thus 
other interrogaive pronouns may also be used 
reduplicated to give plural sense. 

4 ^t? : It is an irregular verb; it remains unchanged for all 

5. ^ : This plural suffix is used- ( i ) after kinship terms 
including ( 51*^1 ) 'boy' and ( csiTt^ ) 'girl*, (ii) other 

( 118 ) 

.y Google 

In Assamese 

human nouns and pronouns in non-hon. senie and 
(iii) class nouns (animals and birds) used to refer 
to human in abusive terms. 

e\'^\9 !5 here is used in approximate plural sense 
It does not mean a number of sons or boys but 
son(s +daughtcr(s). or boy(s) -t-girl(s). 

6. PtfJ! : 5T+ft!<^f^ coming', taken together etf? means 

'come and see', thus C?ft means 'come and give', 
oft means 'come and take'. This -ft again is added 
to verb ^- "go" to give ^ft l 

7. t*j^»l : <fl<*il*+^H I Thus other nouns used as unit of 

measurment may take ^ of «iiv, 5- of 5^ and f^f^, 
bTI^ etc to denote the number of units. 
8 *lCTt1^C?*f^ : It is the corresponding plural form of 
^rntta I Thus, other nouns, followed by defi- 
nitives, may be pluraliscd by inserting -c*?- in 
between the nounstem and the definitive.

Grammatical Notes 

: «^t 'uncle + ^, a marker to show kinship rela- 
tion with 2nd person honorific 'gft + genetive 

Inflection of the kinship terms for jiersons 
(allocation) is a peculiarity in Assamese. The 
hare kinship noun is used in vocative and it 
shows its relation with 1st person. To show 
relations with different persons the following 
markers are added : 

{non-honorific -^ / -^^^ i 
less honorific -^"/-'^'I' 
more honorific - ^ / -iP^ i 
3rd person -^ / -ifl* I 

',. -'f, -'f occur after -«tt ending kinship 
nouns, -^^, -^^1 -lil^ elsewhere. 

«5R^ : «PlM +accufative-«I* I 

^^ ^aitt ; ittf^il^ is a compound verb, meaning 'call on'. 
^ meaning 'going* is added to it expletively. 
Taken together, the whole formation means 
'go and call on'. ^ may also be added to the 
verb Tt 'go' eg. ^t 'go'

form ^ I To form the negative of the verb 
form (present simple, past simple & future 
simple) in Assamese ^i is prefixed of which the 
syllable nucleus -^ is assimilated with the 
vowel of the initial syllable of the verb. 

The negative forms of the imperative verbal 
formations in Assamese end in-l?)^^, (which is 
a Future tense marker) to which peraonal 
suffixes of the Future tense are added. 
Thus : 

For details of future tense formation and their 
negative construction please refer to Lesson 
38 to 42. 
6. Bl^lt^t : 5T^-i(t^-Brt I To express the continuity of action

Notes on Grammatical and Cultural Points 

Further illustrations of negative formations arc given 
in this lesson. Verbs are in present tense, indefinite 
aspect and indicative mood. 

/tumi/bccomes /tomalok./ in the plural. Likewise/apuni/ 
becomes/a ponalok-/ The /-e/ in /tomaloke/ is the nomi- 
native sutfix, used only when the verb is transitive. 
Its use may further be illustrated like this : 

( i ) Nouns and pronouns ending in conconant take the 
nominative suffix -^; ^jc^l sit«fftl I c^t*ltOTTC^ 

( 154 ) 


(ii) In case of nouns ending in -1 or -11 the nomi- 
native suffix takes the form -? ( CTR : fks^ 'ttTi, 

(iii^ In case of -^ ending nouns, the nominative suffix 
takes the form -CT i (M^ : ^fkm «flg ^i^T^ ^ I 

(iv) In case of -^ ending nouns, the nominative suffix 
takes the form -C5 I C^C^l ; flgtfl t15 I I^C? *1CB I 

(v) Pronouns ending in vowels do not take any suffix 
in the nominative. 

^f%f W is a verb-compound. It is formed following the 
principle illustrated below : 

-% is added to the principal verbjtem; the auxi- 
liary occurs as the 2nd component, to which the 
personal suffixes are added to.

Grammatical Notes 

1. The use of pr. sent perfect verb forms in ?»^ + personal 
markers is reinforced in this lesson. Although the verb 
form in -^5^ +personal marker generally expresses *'com- 
pletive" or "perfective" aspect, at times, it expresses the 
"progressive'' or "im perfective" aspect of the verb. Note 
the following : 

^sitpi =ftfj"C5 also means «fit^ ^!ft sitC5 "coming down" 

«^*t!«i ^cs „ ,, 'Q'Ht*! ®fe sftis "going up" 

Pitts ^%? „ „ 5iT|g afsi isni% "light is burning" 

ilisff 5(if5ic6 „ „ itii'if sitf^ lies '"feeling happy" 

2 ^«tT<^* "colaur"+ ?=l I It is an adjective. It means 

3. «it5lC5<«J1^^+ ■<J\ ; so »Wifl1w<»l?CPit+-'il I 

Both the words 11^ and i**? take -Jl in the nominative 
whether the verb is transitive ornot. When inflected for 
other cases, this -^ is added to the case-suffix.

Grammatical Notes 

1. »twt : »t« -l-cvt; this occurs only in negative construc- 
tion. The use of CP after place-name standing in 
ralation of destination to the verb is common, 
eg: f't ^ffiC» s"W9 "He does not go there". The 
further addition of -« to C^ gives negative force 
resulting in the loss of -Ji of C* ; That is 

2. init T^ : ^5+^1 51^ I In the formation of negative of -^^^ 
ending verbs, -it is added to the verbstem (in 
which case the -H of the preceding syllabic of 

( 249 ) u„..,.^,oogie 

An Intensive Courst 

the verbstem changes to «t and is followed by 
the negative particle ^rt? i Verbstem +"iT +511? 
construction holds good for all the 3 persons. 

3. =rt% 1^1 : Although generally the negative particle =iit 

follows the principal verb as in fif^I 't^ in collo- 
quial speech, of coarse, the reverse order (^ ffRft) 
is very frequent and common. 

4. i|R*lR : Cfi is the restrictive emphasis marker. When 

added to any words in the sentence, it restricts 
the involvement of the action of the verb to 
that particular word and a sense of excluding 
other similar things is automatically expressed. 
S1WC5 ill^C^ means '1 have brought meat only, 
Cnot anything of the like.)' 

5. silW llf^rcttW - means *1 have brought only meat, (not cooked, 
nor done anything of this sort-.' Here the restri- 
ction is Oil the verb. 

6. ^ : Tatsama words like ^, ^"fl, 3t, etc donot change 

while showing relations with different persons. 

CTI^ ^ / ^^ / ^ 'l 
C5M ^ / "^ / ^ I 

csTiit^ ^ / "^t^ / a^ 1 

7. nfP 'ttR : »t?+^ «ltC5 I To express the continuity of the 

action -I is added to the main verbstem and is 

, ( 250 ) Di3iz.i,.»^700gie 

followed by the inflected forms of veibstem ^ 
for person and tense Thus we get : 

■v\~t «flS-« : I am eating 
f»l<-^ ^W~4 : I am writing 
f-^>^* 'flff-Q : I am saying 

It is to be noted that unless the action is conti- 
nuing at the time of saying or reffering to, such 
formations are not used. 

Previously ''it^T was considered as the com- 
bination of «iTt+«itC<e! I Currently, formations in 
-^ express that (i) the work is just completed, 
(ii) the work is continuing. But the formation 
in -t+ Its exclusively exprcfses that the work 
is continuing. The-^ + «ttf type is highly 
frequent to express continuity than -^ type e g. : 

11^1 : I have eaten (someLimc I am eating) 
^ t "tclt : I am eating 

Nouns and pronouns other than s^. «lfii, ^. ^jfit, wi^jfsT, 
1^1, W^, >&% c^^ take -£ in the nominative when the verb

Grammatical Notes 

L Use of the continuous aspect of the present tense is again 
illustrated here. This formation is used only when the 
action of the veib is actually continuing (see. gramm. note 
of the preceding lesson). Its construction is as follows : 

Verbstem +% followed by auxiliary vs. 115+per.onal 
suffixes, eg: 

1st cwi +t +«rt5^+4> c^(f3i«itC%T 

r c«f5! + ^ + wtf^ + «i> (^f^ «tl? 

2nd < cwi + I + •ftS,+ «it> C«l^ Itfti 

3rd OW + ^ + ^9 +JI > cil^ ^m 

2. In the genitive formations, which is marked by -«tf ^, the 
pronouns take some oblique shapes as follows :

3. '^'^ : It is an extended form of »^ i It is used in intimate 
reference in the sense "where is it". 

4 •Mi : It is the extended iorm of J^. It is used in intimate 
reference in the sense "here it is". 
Thus c»ft> crat, c»rl> ^rl^ i 

5. brc^K^): This perfect formation literally means that 'the 
going is complete' But, in usage, it is wed to 
respond even before 'the going starts' in the sense 
that 'going' may be considered as if completed.

Grammatical Notes 

1. The present continuous aspect of the verb is reinforced 
here. At the same time. Present continuous in Imperrative 
mood is also introduced here. Rule of the formation of 
the present continuous is as follows : 

Verbroot + ■^+auxiliary »ns,+Pcrsonal suffix for 
present indefinite. As noted earlier verbstems in -^ and 
-fl > -^ and -? respectively; (this -? again is lost by 
haplology when conjunctive -^ is added to.)

( 289 ) 

^n Intensipt Courst 

2. In the formation of present continuous in Imperative 
mood, sJt^ occurs in lieu of itf^ to which imperative per- 
sonal suffixes are add to. 

Example : Vt >^'-% «t!'F-«r? >bl «rtv^ ' 

3. ^^ : Its addition to the asscrative sentences adds the 
sense of *probablity.' 

4. Words referring to direction take -<^ in the locative. 

Examples : (?rf'f^--fl> c^l^ i

sses at least one bandloom. Every woman, as a matter 
of practice, has to weave domestic clothes in these 
looms. They even weave mosquito-net, dhoti, bed- 
sheet, blanket etc. . Some families possess power-loom 
,_ which they use for mass production or commercial

Grammatical Notes 

Simple past tense, introduced in the previous lesson, is 
reinforced here. 

1, Verbal agreement with 2nd person non-honorific and 
3rd person is shown in this lesson* (See grammatical 
notes incorporated in the previous lessiHi). To repeat 
again, they are :

J more-hon. -4, 'St 

3rd person -ifl, -fS [-4 is used with tran- 

sitive verb stems, 
■ a with intransi- 
tive verbstems.] 

eg. m^-(-^s!^+ -J]>Jrt^C»l but 1-'-}-PI,+ ^>il'ei 
Pt- + -9I^+-ii|>B1t5I but ^- + 51 +-^>5'^ 

In the formation of the negative of verbs of simple 
p3st tense, the rule for the formation of negative 
of simple present operates. That is, s^- (=r-f«l)is 
prefixed to the fully inflected verbal formatons and 
-^ of ^- is assimilated with the vowel of the initial 
syllabic of the verb; eg. : 

^"^ !(- is a Nominal- Verbal compoimd. It is inflected 
like the simple verbstem. 

To show relation with 2nd person (non-hon) -^, or 
-^^ is added to the kinship nouns, subject to the 
omdition that the former occurs after -«tt ending 
kinship nouns, the latter elsewhere.

Grammatical Notes 

1 As noted earlier, the kinship nouns in Assaiiese change 
according to the person and rank of the pronoun or noun 
with which the relation is shown When the relation has 
to be shown with 3rd person or 2nd person (more-hon.) 
-^ or --a^ is added to the kinship nouns, subject to the 
condition that -^ occurs after -«^ ending kinship nouns, 
-la^ elsewhere Case-suffix, if any, is added to, after the 
kinship nouns aic inflected for personal relationship, eg. : 

I't -5? >^^T*+ Ace .fl«+^fT** I 
Qf\f] -jfx^n^+Acc. -«i^>ct?U5*¥ I 
"«t? -Jiv^>sira» + Acc, ■^*>¥tcg?? I* 
3(c4ji^>H:c:^«»-i-Gen. -^f>?rc^tc9*T • 
CuSai -*^>OT^l^+Gen. -«i^>w5iST« i 

2. In the formation of the negative of simple past verbs 
also, the negative Hi -*!.+ ^} is prefixed to the verbs sub- 
ject to the distant regressive vowel assimilation. In case 
of vowel initial verbs, the ■^oi-'^ is replaced :

< 433 ) 

An Intmstvt Ctmnm 

the verbstems in -«> -S ; vss in -^> -^ (this -^ is 
dropped by haplology when -?f^ is added to. 

tit3f551^-G; ^l^-^fs"-?; 1t-^%I«tT ; tlT-tf*?! -0; 

The personal suffixes used in this tense, as may- 
be seen in the above examples aresame as those of simple 
past, except the 3rd personal suffix. The suffix for the 
3id person is -0, whether the verb is transitive or intran- 

2. Here also ^- forms its oblique base in f- I When -?f»*»^ 
is added to, «i' of i' and ?- of tfe". constitute a diphthong, 
which is written as Z- ("■'^ ). 

3. The vfrbstcm«(5-takes-ti1^(not -^fFi^) in the past to 
which the personal suffixes are added ( -4 for 1st 
peison, •* for 2nd p^ non-hon., -^ for 2nd pt (hon.) and 
-0 for 2nd p (more hon.) as well as for 3rd person. 

4. ^ here means 'family'. Thus -a^ means 'one family', 
5^ means 'two families', and ^tg?^ means 'the &mily. 
already mentioned before' 

5. Words denoting side, direction etc. take -*a in the 
locative, eg. 

^f^-Ji > t^^ 'on the other side* 

( 434 


^^ Ji >nc' 'on this side* 
fjWiPI ■£ > fjRPcsi *on that side' 
iii?g(t5hj)>,ii^iisrcsi 'on this side' 

6. -^ used with «5^3 marks emphasis Thus tsTCS, 
=SC5 etc . 

7. c'%gt^T is used in assertive sentence, whereas 
C^r®9ts is used only in the negative. 

8. wftifS(*I ; In Assaiiese wf^fvi is not a passive verb. (The 

English meaning is likely to confuse the learners). 
It is tormed by adding -t^^-?"^ to the stem »^- 
which is both a nounstem as well as a veibstem.

Grammatical Notes 

The same remote past tense formation is reinforced here. 
Here close verbstcro with -'(■ in the penultimate posi'ion 
is taken as it involves little phonetic change. 

1. In the close vcrbstems, the -i- in the penultimate 
position changes to -^'- when -(t)n^ or -($)f&Bi^ verbal 
suffix is added to : 

^^+^f65i = {^^'^ *^ -tn ) ^(qf^si 1 

2. (a) Some adverbs are derived from nouns, adjectives or 

simple adverbs by adding -t? Consonmt ending 
adjectives still remain closed even when -t* is added 
to. eg : 

'^^+t' > '^t' 'very much' 

«Pl^+t*> "St^lf 'well 

(?Rtt + t*> C^lt^ 'badly' 

CVi\+ 1* > cst^t* forcefully' 

ti^f? +i*>«^f*^t? 'severely' 

(b) Some adverbs are derived from nouns by adding- jiCT I 

(3m+iiC^>C«tC^C^ 'forcefully* 
CT^+JIC^ >Mt1W 'fast* 

* -DigmzedOyGOOgle 

Alt Intensive Ccvx 

Of course, such uses are very limited, 
(c) Duplicate use ot some adverbs is . also permisible. 



^S ^H 




3. The subject of "t^sf 'roar', which is an intransitive verb, 
takes nominative case suffix. This is one of the fcw 
exceptions- Similar verbstems. behaving like transitive, 
are -^15 'dance', t^9. 'laugh', ^W 'cry' and c^^^run'.

Grammatical Notes 

1. In Assamese, except where it is absolutely necessary to 
indicate the actual continuity of the action in past, this 
aspect of the past tense is not used. 

Its formation is the same as that of Present Continu- 
ous. -^ is added to the main verbstem which is followed 
by the inflected forms of the auxiliary verbstem ^- in 
the remote past tense, e g. : 

»ti?-+^ + ^ I ^ I -^ I -^ \ 
^m-+ -t-\- ^ / ^ / ^ / ^ I 

5T- + 4+ 4 I ^ / 4 / ^ I 

( 522 ) 

:y Google 

2. Instrumental is expressed in Assamese by -C - flr'. sh 
and ^- ^'1. Of these, the first three are added to non- 
human nounstems; <^ is added to vowel ending stems 
and -iflC^ to consonant ending ones, -ilf^ occurs as an alterna- 
tive to -iiR but, with less frequency. ^ ^t?t occurs only 
after human nounstems. e.g. :

Grammatical Notes 

1. The Negative formations of the verbs in -%t^^ are intro* 
duced. For this, there are two processes : 

( 537 ) 

.y Google 

An Intensive Cimm 

<a) -^ is added to the verbstcm and is followed by the 
inflected foms of the auxliary vcrbstem -^1? in tbe 
past negative. That is, the main verb stem + -^ 
combination is followed by the inflected forms of life > 
eg.: - 

«li5+ -Ulii+aifsa > »i«t itfsi I 
^ + .»it si+^ifsn > c^51 =nfs»i I 

•15+ .ait si + «llf65I + 4 >»l?l 'tfew 1 
This is the usual proceduie of negative formation of 
-t^ ending verbs. 

(b) When a past ntgative habit is to be expressed, 't- 
is prefixed to the verbal formations in -?f%^ and the -^ 
of »l«l is assimilated with the vowel cf the first syllable 
of the verb, eg : 

=is + Jif!" - ^hr'sa 

fl«I + «lf5''ssi= nlftfiei 1 

iia + fsfsfl = taftfefl ' 
(ilCH -a^W c*%9tQ occur only in the negative con- 
struction; -« carries a negative force.

Grammatical Notes 

1. Future tense formation is introJuccd here in this lesson. 

(a) Future tense markers are ■(% 1, and -t?)^,- -(^)\ is 
used in the first person and -C)^, elsewhere The 
initial -{?) in both the cases is dropped after verb- 
stems ending in vowels Verbstems in -•Q and -i£|> 
-S and -* respectivdy, when -(t)\ or - t)^^ is required 
to be added to. 

(b) The personal suffixes that are added to (-^)^ and 
-(^)^^ are as follows : 

AStp. : verbstcm +{t)\ + 0>^^,v^^,1^^ 

j-non-hnn. vs. +(? i^ + t >'<llf^, ^ftffl, fr)^ I 
2nd p. ■ hon. vs. +\.t ', +«it >1W. *f^Jil, ft?t i 

more-hon vs +(?)? +1 > «tt?, *1^a fir? I 
3rd p. verbstcm +t.?)\+«t >W, *ft^, fif? r 

2. The negativt of Future Indicative and Future Imperative 

are constiucied in two different ways : (a) For the nega- 

( 589 ) .,...A,cx,g,e 

An /nteiuiMCMrit 

tive of future Indicative the negative of simple present 
holds ^ood. eg. : 

^'Itl : =tW« ; ^f^ : Siic^* ; fifir : l^S 

Indicative "\ it^l : citi^ai ; ^^^ : ^*^r ; Nt : U^V9[ 

^^ : ^ iim ; ^f^ : ^^lj^ -, t»? . UUa i 

(b) To form the negative of future Imperative, the na- 
tive element is prefixed to the verbform of which 
the syllable nucleus is assimilated vnth the fint 
vowel of the verb form- This is however restricted 
to the 2nd person, ei : 

Imperative -4 

3. When special cuphasLi is given, the negative of the 
Future Indicative in 1st person. 2nd person (m-non.) and 
3rd person may also be formed as in 2(b). This is, of 
course, in sharp contrast with 2(a) above : 

4 To denote 'on a particular day' -W is added to -ft^ eg. : 
Hsfjp^, «itiirif^T 6i%ft. *^fiRTt. ffsfifaw ^«t but to couot 
days -«tt is not added eg:, 'one day* ^fim *two days' ^fw «c 

I 530 ) DO .M,v.TOOgie 

In Assamzie 

5. Temporal words like Ttfs, ^aT, 1^, %»\^, artc^ifn etc. 

except f^^ donot take locative suffix -"5 even when 
they express locus of action. 

6. In informed or colloquial speech the genitive -^ is usually 

dropped from phrases like WTStW ^^, *t*tT^ Jif^ I'SJlfw 
ruiulting in wifllt *lf%', ^Wt'Ol ^1^ ^'snfw I

Grammatical Notes 

1. To express the present continuous there is another device. 

-(t)^ is added to the vetbstem and is follonred by the 
auxiliary »R^-+ aspect -¥« to which the personal suffixes 
are added. Such forms are semantic substitute for 
the construction vs.+ -^ + auxiliary «»T»^- + person 

Examples : 

"..-*' ",-^^-111 > »fti <(fe -^ *ft »iUt I 
a-t^ w^*5^-ji > fw "ifTO — ft vm I 

2. To express the sense of compulsion, -(?)1,is added to the 

( 619 ) L.a,-zc;A>oogle 

An Intensive Couth 

verbstem which is followed by the auxiliary siTt-; tensr 
aspect /personal marker, if any, is added to sitiv I 

example : 

iT-'{t)^ 2it'!j'i)>'«li sTtcf ► 

C^t-?5 9ll'51^-t<l,> <5a 811 (qJT t 

It has to be noted that these txpressions are impersonal; 
like the negative, these cxprcisions donot change for the 
person. The same forms occur for all persons :

Cultural Note 

1. »lilfCl ! The temple of the mother goddess Kamafchya is 
situated on the Nilachal Hill about 9 kms. away 
from the city of Gauhati. 

As per the legend in the Mahahharata, king 
Daikkha, the father-in-law of Lord Sbiva 
celebrated a 'Jagya . Having uodermined Shiva, 
the king did not invite him. His daughter Sati' 
without being invited came to the athers house 
where she herself heard how her husband Shiva 
had been defamed amidst the other gods present. 
So she herself succumbed to death. Then her 
husband became half-mad and having carried 
her dead body on his shoulder he started roam- 
ing around the world until the diffient parts 
of her body got dissipated. The goddess's sei- 
organ fell down at Nilachal and the temple of 
Kamakhya has been built. Kdmakhya is one of 
the famous 'Shakti Pitha*, a centre of sacrifice, 

( 664 ) D,9rz.l,».jOO^ie 

Even now animals and birds arc sacrifictd at 
Kamakhya In the month of June, a gceeat lair 
is held at Kamakhya, known as Ambubashi 

In the 16th century A.D. a popular king, named 
Naranarayan, ruled in the Koclibeher. the western 
part of ancient Kamrup. now North-Bengal. He 
was a very learned king and he patronized a 
number of famous Assamese poets including 
'Sankardeva*. He once invaded the kingdom of 
Ahom and conquered some part of it. The re- 
consturuaion of the temple of Kamakhya is one 
of bis gieat achievements. It is also said ^t 
king Naranarayan used gold while constructing 
the temple.

Grammatical Notes 

L Use of infinitives with finate verbs in the past tense is 
shown here Whether the finite verb is in the present 
tense or puit, theie is no change in the infinitive forma- 
tion. The formation of the infinitive is governed by the 
rules noted at the end of the Lesson 43. 

2. The distinction between the use of verb-root 5'- and W^- 
to be noted. 5t- is used to mean the "act of seeing with 
intention", W^- elsewhere

Grammatical Notes 

1. Here infinitives are introduced in sentences, wlierc the 
finite verbs are in future. The change of tense of the 
finite verb does not atfect the infinitive formation in 
the sentences. 

2. Temporal words 115, ^^ and ftst take •'(S in the locative, 
whereas ^t and ^tftf take -J) only. Other temporal words 
viz : *^, sifRit. «nc^f*i, *ifeit, f*ra1^, 1^, ^h ^tK 'tf* 
^VifWi do not take any suffix in the lacative; eg, :

be noted. The former requires an actor (subject) aad an 
undergoer ( •object) as in C^ O^ ^bl t^Vi. t The 
later requires only an actor or subject but no undcigoes 
as in C8^ (?1T? Vn ^^«tn5 The verb phrase (-^»?fi) 
before the finate verb consists of the veibform for the 
futuretenst (ist person )+^^, Fhis verb phrase can't be 
replaced by infinitives.

Grammatical Notes 

1. The formation of causative verbs is introduced here. 

2. To from the causative verbs, causative suffix, viz: -1 

or -^ is first added to the verbstems and the causative 
vcrbstems are formed to which tense-mood and personal 
suffixes are added; eg: 

1. 1T5-+ -^>ag5t- +4 : igat5 I 
3. ^^- + .Bit>*?t- « : ^^« I 

5. «lt- + -«ll>\r-+-'s' : ^^i ( 

3. The use of -«it and -^ is morirfiolpgically conditioned- 
In the last two examples, the causative verbstems indi* 
cate oblique bases. In example 2, both -^ and -^ a" 
in free variation. 

( 724 ; 

.y Google 

In AsuoHtu 

4. Some vcrbstems do not form causative stems in Assamese; 


om- 'to play' lit. 'to go" 

•f- 'to come' 5- 'to be' 

5. An intransitive verb becomes transitive when used in 
causative ; eg; 

f 1* "P^Prf -I loam- 

L ''^ \^^' 'I cause (someone) to roam* 

C '5t? site 'she dances'

Crammatica) Notes 

1, To express the comparison between two items in tcrmsct 

some quality, the noun or pronoun with which another 
noun or pronoun is compared is first inflected toe the 
locative ro w'lich -t* is added eg ; 

^•ir + «)5 +tf = ^f 'st'F— than Ram 
^>3H-«^+^'~w^^*— *than him" 
«li*|fsi>it1c*1Kt+a^+^-'than you' 

2. The quality-words are not generally inflected for the 
expression of the comparison Only the Skt words ate 
so inflected for the expression of the comparison. 
Example i 

^->- S665f 'higher'

Grammatical Notes 

1 The formation of Passive voice sentences is introduced 
here. The rule of f o rmation is very f imple : 

^ is added to the main verbstem subject to the mor- 
phophonemic changes noted below. The auziliaiy vs.

this purpose -^ or -^ (-^\ is more formal whereas -«lt 
is colloquial) is aded to the verbstem subject to the regu- 
lar morphophonemic rule. The verbal noun thus 
constructed can function as subject or object of the 

, verbi eg. :

1. The use of past conditional verbs in the principal clause 
is introduced here. The rule is very simple. Only -rfl" 
is added to the fully inflected simple past tense verbs.

2. The verb in the subordinate clause is an infinate one. 
In this construction, '-It + fd' or *-«it4-C5'C3^' is added 
to the verbstem- : 

It is to be noted that the conditioning infinite

heard, our boy-servant 
has escaped yesterday. 
He is not here since

Having entered into 
his room, I saw that 
his garments etc.

One day I asked Bubul, 
"Bubul, how did you enjoy 
Assam ?' He replied, "I 
enjoyed very much father' 
X again asked, ' which thing 
could impress in your mind 
too deeply ?" He replied, 
"the Joysagar tank and Joy- 
doul (impressed in my mind. 
Both lemind me of the 
sacrifice of Sati Joymati." 
I again asked, ^ who is Sati 
Joyraati ?'' He said, "Sati 
Joymati is the wife of king 
Gadadhaisiogha. She brea- 
thed hex last in the hands 
of the loyal constables for 
tht, welfare of her husband"

The book is gooj. Since 
that has been received, 
there may not be any 
difficulty for you.

One day I asked my friend, 
"How did you find 
Kashmir ?" He replied. 
"It was not nice for me.'' 
My wife asked, "Are 
grapes, pears, apples are 
cheap there ? - Is wool 
also available there at cheap 
rate ?" 

"No, where will you get 
at cheap rate ? Raher those 
are more costly there. Of 
course, things are plenty 
there. Supply as well as 
demand is more there," he 

This time his son asked 
whether their father would 
go to Derjccling next year.

Eating the fruit, given by 
the Sannyasi, the younger 
queen delivered a son. who 
had been named as Kamal 
Kumar. After the birth of 
Kamala Kumar the king 
became more affectionate 
towards the younger queen 
for which the elder queen be- 
came jealous. Silently, she 
used to find the means to 
kill Kamalkumar. 

Having grown up luxuri- 
antly, Kamal Kumar used to 
keep duck, pigeon, goat etc 
When they came to elder 
mother's courtyard, she used 
to tie up them The elder 
mother even scolds Kamal

tantly told that if the

taken with the lever of a
